Yesterday was her 89th birthday!  I was a teenager when she became popular and was a big fan.  Such great songs.  I remember seeing her on all those variety shows in the 1960's.

I read that in the paper. I loved her song Downtown also. She had on GoGo boots and mini skirt on Ed Sullivan show when she sang it. My mother named our cat after her too.

She has some other wonderful songs too but she's most known I think for Downtown.
